Association between habitual dietary salt intake and risk of gastric cancer: a systematic review of observational studies.

High dietary intake of salt may increase stomach cancer development risk.


This study assessed the correlation between habitual consumption of salty foods and gastric (stomach) cancer risk. Researchers systematically reviewed 10-year old data on salt intake and gastric cancer odds ratio of 2,076498 subjects extracted from 4 cohort and 7 case-control studies. They found a high incidence of stomach cancer among frequent consumers of salty foods. The findings of this review provide further evidence that support the hypothesis that high dietary ingestion of salt may contribute positively to the development of stomach cancer.
